Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a digitalize technology that permits the transfer of analog voice
signals converted into data packets in an Internet Protocol (IP) data network. It is a solution that helps
in providing telephony and multimedia services that goes beyond the functionalities offered by the
traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) has
been the main communication protocol through which this technology has been deployed. Today,
with the evolvement of Broadband technologies and the tendency to make all communication devices
oriented IP, coupled with the problems raised by the limitation of IPv4 to address new requirements
in term of availability of IP addresses, security and Quality Of Service (QoS) management, IP next
generation (IPng) also called IPv6 is the new version that definitely addresses these problems in the
most effective way. However, the transition from the older to the newer version needs to be done
with special considerations. Transition technics such as dual-stack are developed to handle this
immediate need. This paper presents a proposal of technical and management parameters that
organizations can consider to ensure successful implementation of VoIP telephony service in their
network architecture where IPv4 and IPv6 are used as main communication protocols. These
considerations concern particularly the physical, logical and security area of the network hierarchy
segmented into Access, Distribution, Core and Application levels.
